Today, Poplar clones, being raised as monocultures, are prone to attack of a large number of fungal pathogens. These pathogens are in vitro cultured for varied studies. It is believed that natural media (vegetable and plant extract host decoction), stimulates growth and sporulation of a fungus. Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the influence of different concentrations of host (P. deltoides) leaf extract on its potential pathogens. Nine isolates three of each Bipolaris sp., Curvularia sp. and Sclerotium rolfsii were taken for experimentation. All these pathogenic fungi had better growth in leaf extract medium than without it but fungal growth was inhibited at higher concentrations of leaf extract.
